VIRTUAL EVENTThe Project Teams Gathering (PTG) provides meeting facilities allowing the various technical community groups working on open infrastructure projects to meet virtually, exchange and get work done in a productive, low-key setting. It lets those various groups discuss their priorities for the upcoming months, assign work items, iterate quickly on solutions for complex problems, and make fast progress on critical issues. The co-location of those various meetings, combined with the dynamic scheduling of the event, make it easy to get specific people in the same room to discuss a specific topic, or participate in multiple team meetings.

Who Should Attend

PROJECT CONTRIBUTORS

Contributors actively involved in an Open Infrastructure project team that is meeting at the PTG. Attendees should have existing knowledge of the teams whose meetings they are planning to attend. If you are hoping to get started with a particular team, check with them to make sure they are planning to do onboarding before you book travel because many teams will have full agendas.

OPERATORS / END USERS

Operators who deploy the software (and end users who directly interact with those deployments) are encouraged to attend, interact with upstream contributors for the projects you run, plan to run or have feedback for. You will also have the opportunity to collaborate with fellow operators to discuss common pain points and best practices.

TEAM LEADERS

Leaders from teams, SIGs, working groups that decide not to meet are encouraged to attend the PTG anyway to represent the views of their group at the event.

Who Should Not Attend

The PTG is intended for engaged community members that are involved in open source teams working on one of the projects supported by the OpenInfra Foundation or adjacent project communities. This includes workgroups, development teams, external open source projects (like Ceph or Kubernetes, SIG, etc). If you're brand new to a project, we recommend attending the OpenInfra Summit first, which features presentations, Forum sessions (designed to get wider community feedback) and on-boarding sessions.

The event is NOT the event to sell goods -- hiring managers and product vendors are not encouraged to attend. The OpenInfra Summit is a more appropriate event for teams with goals of this nature.

Usually this event is not for new contributors; however, we are including the possibility for teams to do project onboarding as a part of the PTG. That being said, not all teams will be participating, only those that want to.

How can this benefit my organization?

Our community is global. This creates challenges that cannot easily be solved using asynchronous, low-bandwidth communication tools. Getting technical community members to meet regularly is essential to build the amount of shared understandings and trust that is necessary to successfully cooperate. Participants to the event are therefore a lot more productive and efficient the rest of the year.

PTGs are organized in a virtual setting, or in cost-effective transportation hubs in order to minimize travel expense. At the same time, we aim to maximize the ability of contributors to work through their workgroup objectives in an environment that is focused towards work and productivity.

Code of Conduct

All attendees of the Project Teams Gathering must follow the OpenInfra Foundation community Code of Conduct.
